This must be a spoof as it is so deliberately camp and tongue in cheek.
Michael Gough has a ball as the nasty Dr Storm making lobotomised zombie slaves in his countryside "health" farm, where rolling stone Robin Asqwith has decided to take a "Hairy Holiday" courtesy of gay travel agent Dennis Price.
It seems the doctor has a deal with this old queen to supply likely candidates for the funny farm, and then uses them like puppets to do his bidding. Robin teams up with a girl travelling to the same place to meet her eccentric aunt, who is helping the doctor perform his work, and soon the couple are in danger of facing the scalpel themselves. Add to this mix a crazy homicidal dwarf who chops off the heads of anyone trying to flee the institution with a scythe weilding converted Rolls Royce- don't ask, and a suprise reveal at the end when it turns out the doctor isn't quite what he first appears either, and you have a totally mad, but impossible to dislike bit of demented British horror exploitation fun.
This DVD looks great, and the film looks brand new in a lovely print that could have been shot yesterday.
